Manchester Confidential reviewer Mark Garner believes that Manchester French restaurant 63 Degrees in the Northern Quarter is going from strength to strength.
Manchester Confidential - an online lifestyle publication - has recently reviewed 63 Degrees, one of the French restaurants Manchester has to offer.
63 Degrees Manchester is managed by the Moreau family - father and head chef Eric Moreau runs the kitchen having previously worked in two-Michelin starred establishments in Paris, while mother and son head up the front of house team. The family-run restaurant - which is one of few French Manchester restaurants - has been gathering rave reviews as a result of its high quality food, well thought-out wine list and attentive service.
Manchester Confidential reviewer Mark Garner was impressed with the updated menu, believing that the dishes now reflect the true skill of Eric Moreau. In particular, Garner praised the new starters which show off Moreau's talent for creating classic French stocks. He also commended Alexandre Moreau's well thought-out wine list, which unabashedly includes wines from the new world.
Garner tried several of the new dishes available on the 63 Degrees menu, all confirming that the Manchester French restaurant is going from strength to strength. He praised the pea cream with mint, a giant prawn and saffron, while the gilt-head bream tartare with avocado, tomato and basil was his stand-out dish.
The Manchester Confidential reviewer also had plenty of praise for the main courses, believing that the head chef delivered on the cod steak with butter sauce, black olives and basil with crushed potatoes while the lamb dish cooked in lemon thyme and an upside-down tomato tart was also an absolute winner.
To round up his experience at 63 Degrees, Garner said: "All in all a spectacular menu and one that people should rush to try."
